Product Description

No longer does world Christianity converge in the Euro-American West - there has been a dramatic shift to the Global South, providing the occasion for a fresh consideration of the future of evangelical theology. Drawing on the day of Pentecost narrative, Amos Yong puts forward a bold proposal for a pentecostal-evangelical theology informed by the particular experiences and perspectives of Asian Americans.

The outpouring of Christ's Spirit upon all flesh means that the evangelical church has to attend to the multiplicity of voices and contexts that shape the global theological conversation. Evangelical theology, Yong argues, is necessarily contextual theology, though in a way that does not sacrifice the gospel's universality.

The Future of Evangelical Theology is a programmatic vision for theology that pays attention to the realities of gender, race, migration, economics, justice and politics. What emerges is a theology situated within a pentecostal Asian American context that bears on the future of the whole church.

Endorsements

In this book Amos Yong, surely one of the most prolific and imaginative theologians working today, dares the American church to consider Asian Americans and their storied journeys as critical for its future. The quality of his impressively informed argument requires we take his dare seriously, as it recounts how evangelical Christianity has become dispirited and how a quickening of Asian American 'pent-evangelicalism,' as this inspired book is wont to do, just may save it.
-Jonathan Tran,
Baylor University

Amos Yong has provided a work that evangelical Christianity has desperately needed. By providing a thorough examination of the burgeoning yet essential field of Asian American theology, Yong fills a significant gap in evangelical scholarship. This book will serve as the essential text not only for Asian American readers but for everyone concerned about the future of North American evangelicalism. This book exemplifies the best of the next evangelicalism.
-Soong-Chan Rah,
North Park Theological Seminary

This is a bold, brave and brilliant book, one that is truly boundary-breaking. Amos Yong offers a critique of pentecostal and evangelical theology that is sharp and penetrating, but nevertheless life-giving and transformative. He offers encouragement to Asian and Asian American evangelicals and pentecostals to find their own voice in exploring their Christian faith, but the book is also a call to other Asian and Asian American Christians. In some ways that are even more important, however, this is a call to all Christians to trust their experience, context and culture and to construct theologies that are both rooted in their lives and that can be shared across them.
-Stephen Bevans, S.V.D.,
Catholic Theological Union

Amos Yong delivers to Protestantism a beautiful matrix of biblical and cultural analysis that provides a model for the types of discussions we must have if evangelicalism is to have a future in the West. Yong helps us see that recapturing evangelicalism's past is not the way forward, given the fact that ethnic minorities and immigrants, and Asian Americans in particular, are among the most vibrant and growing sectors of evangelicalism today. Yong will not only increase the reader's cultural intelligence, but the book provides the right questions and categories that all strands of American Protestantism must engage in the twenty-first century. This book is essential reading for those who care about the future of Christianity in the West.
-Anthony B. Bradley,
associate professor of theology and ethics, The King's College, New York City

What can Asian American 'pent-evangelicals' offer the church? Dr. Yong argues for an Asian American theology and vision of the church that takes seriously the transcendent claims of evangelical theology, the global thrust of Pentecostal mission and the immanent claims of the gospel mediated through local culture. This is a book that every Asian American Christian, evangelical and/or Pentecostal or not, will find profound, and that all Christians who recognize the hybrid nature of culture must read.
-Sharon Tan,
United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities

Editorial Reviews

"The outpouring of Christ's Spirit upon all flesh means that the evangelical church has to attend to the multiplicity of voices that shape the global theological conversation. The Future of Evangelical Theology is a programmatic vision for theology that pays attention to the realities of gender, race, migration, economics, justice and politics."
"This book is accessible to advanced undergraduates and to pastors. As a resource for further research it may prove to be invaluable. Yong's broad reach into existing scholarly work may provide the biggest value for academics, but it is his pent-evangelical immigrant status that informs all of his practice."
